Sound Journey - with Nic, Joy & Will

Nic, Will and Joy are sound practitioners and musicians focussing on soundscapes and space holding sonic journeys. The instruments include a frame drum, didgeridoo, singing bowls, classical (nylon string) guitar, hang drum, harp, sansula, koshi bells, and crystal bowls. They will create soothing journeying sounds accompanied by voice and vocal toning. 

We will combine guided meditation and embodiment practices, such as yogic stretching and breathwork, entwined with sound to prepare the body for a deep rest and stillness.   


Nic will use tools and techniques developed within his 'Practical Enlightenment' program (www.nicmalin.com) to guide people into their bodies, releasing physical and mental tension. Using guided introspection and sound to allow people to come back to a complete state of rest with ease within themselves.

Chi Gung - with Damian

Chi Gung (or Qigong) is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training.

When practiced, chi gung can help us to connect deeper to the life force energy of the Earth and the Universe around us. It brings peace, awareness, and a greater sense of balance in our minds, bodies & emotional state.

Be Your Own Beard - with Mr Wesley Dykes

Join Mr Wesley Dykes, your friendly neighbourhood fxckboi, for beard crafting and storytelling, as we celebrate and hold space for the weird, wonderful, and not-so-wonderful things we have gone through to be the people we are today.

Please be cognizant that this space is primarily for LGBTQI folks. Allies are more than welcome but please be aware of the space you may be taking up at any time.

Emotional Intimacy with Joy & Will

In this workshop we will introduce some of the foundational principles of how to work with, engage and become intimate with the emotional body

We will explore the main emotions, their energy and their corresponding sensations; the triggers that bring them to the surface and the tools techniques that allow for more conscious awareness within the emotional system.

This is a key factor in emotional intimacy with others, which is required for relating in a way that can feel both vulnerable and safe at the same time. 

We will underpin all these ideas with a grounding in embodiment and meditation practice. This will keep the ideas alive and will give space for people to feel their way through the workshop, rather that it being all about an intellectual understanding.

We will engage in partner work, in a safe and held space for people to explore their emotions, the triggers and the reactions, and explore healthy communication around this.
